6:35 am
real principal shot and killed the austrian archduke ferdinand in sarajevo. afterwards he was quoted as saying i am a yugoslav nationalist aiming for the unification of all yugoslavs we must be free from austria although the assassination of their arch you did kind of make the austrians men and heck now they had a reason to attack the last logic stronghold serbia this was however not the real reason for the attack the austrians and germans had a plan to expand their empire to the east war was the only way they to achieve this . scheme king during the early period of world war one a bunch of yugoslav politicians fled the hapsburg empire in a form of the us subcommittee in london to raise funds and realize the yugoslav dream towards the end of the war the committee met up in court for greece with the serbian government and the clear that serbs croats and slovenes were quote the same by blood by language by the feelings of their unity by the continuity and integrity

6:37 am
it went to fascist hungary some of it went to fascist italy macedonia went to the ariens and the albanians and and serbia was occupied by the math and then ruled by the germans and bosnia were united in a fascist state under the regime this was called the independent state of croatia the idea of course in one thousand nine hundred one was that croatia would be a condominium full of german power in the balkans the creation fascists were quick to start radically all not. only as hitler's final solution was applied here as well hundreds of thousands of serbs but also jews roman others were killed most of them at the fourth largest concentration camp in europe yes and that's all number of six hundred thousand were killed at the sound of a. ration inquisition which took place in world war two
6:38 am
makes the spanish inquisition just look like child's play pope pius supported this fascist regime the top leadership of the vatican was fully cognizant of what was going on there on the other hand royalists loyal to the crown called check next decided to act to check next with the resistance movement which even though the claimed it's still. the yugoslav the royal yugoslav on me in the fatherland was composed almost exclusively of soaps however after the bloody german the retries. in the fall of one thousand nine hundred one the czech next realized that continued resistance attendee cost when the germans were killed a hundred steps from a single bed german was self-defeating and suicide the certain matters west they just wanted to german bodies so all aid to the chantix was cut and shifted towards another group of fighters who managed to neutralize all on the groups the yugoslav

6:41 am
a quiet revolution to overthrow communist governments and parties. triggers a whole series of other initiatives most of which sunbelt published the decision directive city states that what the united states would want to achieve is that yugoslavia ceased to be a market socialist economy and become a free book at the call of the multiple of the west as the soviet system was on its last legs in one thousand nine hundred eight washington wasted no time in sending advisors to yugoslavia from a nonprofit organization with a high sounding name national anthem for democracy or anybody going in and welcome. it's good to have you all here to help celebrate the launching of a program with a vision and a and a noble purpose the establishment of the national endowment goes right to the heart of america's faith in democratic ideals and institutions but however alan weinstein who planned the end he told the washington post in one thousand nine hundred one

6:45 am
members of the international monetary fund and world bank where each jacob and bronco milan are each coordinator professor of a selling book which worked closely with the world bank and as the minister of privatization under yugoslav premier on to markovitch he was in charge of the world bank bankruptcy program in yugoslavia during one thousand nine hundred nine in one thousand nine hundred which led to the devastation of the yugoslav economy other members of the g. seventeen consulted for the world bank and ten world bank organized meetings in two thousand and two they formed a political party in serbia and since then to spite the fact that in every election the bottom a tween seven and eleven percent of the popular vote she seventeen control the ministry of finance and the ministry of economy of serbia this is not simply a group of economists. it is a network the i.m.f. and world bank used this network to impose their policies on yugoslavia and how do they do it first they force governments to do away with any social protection subsidize food or rent free transportation free medical care you know all those

things you don't really need out there when you cut back in public sector spending you cut wages you cut employment you abolish work a management enterprises in other words you force your people to work harder for less second they use economic manipulation and new laws to force businesses public and private into bankruptcy the world bank describes the second isn't as a trigger as a trigger mechanism they use that they say we need to trigger the bankruptcy of us love in this. then these businesses are taken over by a small clique of leveraged buyout speculators and other powerful for economic interests they've purchased the businesses at rock bottom prices creditors put simply take hold of these of of these enterprises within a forty five day period and either the enterprise that closed or it was five it
6:47 am
just this is called privatization through liquidation world bank debt a confirms in under book a teacher's direction from january one thousand nine hundred ninety s. attender in one thousand nine hundred more than one thousand one hundred industrial firms were wiped out. the standard of living declined eighteen percent between january and up holbourne one thousand nine hundred this downturn raise unemployment to twenty percent and thus increased tensions between republics impoverished the population through this these sweeping i.m.f. reforms which in turn contributed to your heightening socialistic strife so you have the satisfaction of everybody and everybody is looking for a. party. that you can all session which sits on the stool or sit. on it was that. quick but would have broken doing until it doesn't i just did and that's a moment to get it he skipped he did that a lot was it just in a nickel big new cut going it goes with the down and the up and desperation prime
6:48 am
minister marc rich visited washington to meet with president george bush he said that rising tensions among nationalities would be a consequence of his austerity privatization plan so he asked for a billion dollars in aid and said that if a didn't come there would be trouble and we all know the americans didn't want any trouble in november of one nine hundred ninety president george bush went to the u.s. congress and pressured them to pass the foreign appropriations law that calls for the cutting off all aid and credits the yugoslavian the law also demanded that if any republic in yugoslavia wanted further u.s. aid it would have to break away from yugoslavia and declare its independence ok it's not a conspiracy theory it's not my speculation it's not my analysis it's a public law it's a public law that required the us state department approval of election procedures
6:49 am
and results in every one of the republics it required that the republicans do not hold national elections but hold the lections only in their own republics and that the aid would go chill individually to those republics when the aid did go. it went to those groups which the us defined as democratic groups which meant small rightwing ultra nationalist and even fascistic parties this fracturing of yugoslavia was not the result of preexisting internal divisions those internal divisions were high and as a result of outside intervention by one thousand nine hundred one the inflation was two hundred percent and the yugoslav federal government was unable to pay the enormous interest on its foreign debt or even to arrange the purchase of raw materials for its industry credit collapsed and recriminations broke out on all sides cooperation between the republics and the belgrade central government virtually ceased the republics were not getting any money from the federal
6:50 am
government they were transferring the tax revenues so the whole federal fiscal structure collapsed and the republics were left to their own devices and then came in of course the new form of nationalism as the americans demanded multiparty elections were held and economic policy was at the center of the political debate as nationalist and separatist coalitions ousted the communists in croatia bosnia and slovenia and with the republics at another strobes both the economy and the nation itself embarked on a vicious downward spiral and of course the local people down with. the. memory going to enter. into. the midst of the people needed a hero to save them somewhere with their interests at heart instead. they got these guys. in one thousand nine hundred one elections were held in the bosnian republic
6:51 am
of yugoslavia. a former nazi collaborator in world war two was a candidate who had an islamist vision for the mainly christian bosnia as professed in this little book you wrote. there can be neither peace nor coexistence between the islam a religion and honest on the social and political institutions ali i lost the election of the moderate muslim leader feek adopt each losing the elections didn't stop our alioto he made a deal with speaker it where are you i would be president but would quit after a year or so faster than you can see islam a declaration ali i made sure his presidency was extended due to the crisis as you can have a power struggle in such tragic times and in fact there was a moment when i could have prevented the war when he signed the lisbon agreement in one thousand nine hundred two which would have made bosnia confederation of three regions didn't like this he wanted all the power luckily for him the americans didn't like this peace idea either so the american ambassador to yugoslavia one
6:52 am

6:53 am
putting their lives up and then rightly proclaim arrested for it. i became an overnight star as protective of all servants all over this incident the police will stray localized this guy needed bigger states. so because he was so thankful this friend even he booted him from the presidency he also got killed decades later you'd think that after a slow build it and he president of serbia he'd calm down but no he still needed a bigger stage and what luck the big anniversary was coming oh as surgery miking the six hundredth anniversary of the battle of kosovo which is the crux of their historical culture waving serbian yugoslav american canadian flags patriotic songs civil took the stage with west described as nationalist call to arms and playing the us there was no audio version that's when i was led into the on on what is now a study some old war story my book when i have no problem was the same you could not see jack way when noisy. where people were the way it was no i don't know it's

6:56 am
capital sarajevo which had the largest number of ethnically mixed marriages with the message to the politicians don't sacrifice peace for political ambition. it was higher interest in keeping yugoslavia together as a politician's decided to send a message of their own to the demonstrators. to the scenes to see. slovenia in croatia where the first who decided that peaceful negotiations weren't working out for them so they unilaterally declared independence in one thousand nine hundred one. that was done and someone started out in there with the stuff that is out. bosnia followed in one thousand nine hundred of them were quickly recognized by the west when the white house announced that we would be recognizing slovenia croatia and bosnia we had the state department had no idea
